It seems to me, there is no fortune, philosophy, religion, or fine prize worth the degradation of the earth and all her children.
I began awakening to environmental issues in 1971. At Rhode Island School of Design, I was introduced to the Hudson River School of American landscape painters and began a lifelong stand of honoring the earth.
Even though abstract expressionism was the powerful and beautiful voice of the day, and dozens of prominent movements have come and gone, I knew that eventually the natural world would again become a pivotal point in the world of art. As a focused paradigm, its time has come.
This image is the latest in a series of Rainforest paintings. I have made an alloy of realism and internal images, seen while visioning.
